Srinagar: In Kashmir, the Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Personal Law Board and Deputy Grand Mufti, Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam has said that it is the time for Indian Muslims to demand a separate country within India.
Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam addressing a press conference in Srinagar, today, said that Muslims were being harassed on various pretexts in India.
“India is moving on the path of intolerance. Muslims are being harassed on the various pretexts. Sometimes they are being harassed on the pretext of love jihad, sometimes it is cow vigilantism or triple talaq,” he added.
He said Muslim community is the second largest in India and if same situation continues, it is time for them to demand a separate country for them. “In India, Muslims are the second largest community.
